america's future. and additional funding is provided by the following supporters -- >>> good evening, i'm martin savidge, thank you for joining us. it was an attack so damaging that one former intelligence official described it as the cia's pearl harbor. we're talking about the suicide bombing yesterday that killed eight americans, some of them cia employees. today a spokesman for the taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. saying a bomber entered the base last night and blew himself up. it was the worst loss for the cia since the war there began more than eight years ago. yesterday's attack took place at a remote outpost known as chapman in the province of khost, along the border with pakistan. this evening the associated press is reporting that the suicide bomber was invited on to the base by americans. according to a former senior intelligence official, the man was being courted as an informants and it was the first time he had been brought inside the camp. he was reportedly not searched. much of the cia's efforts in that region including drone attacks had been focused on the

. america's economy was built on free market enterprise. it was built on these principles that allowed the private sector to grow and thrive and prosper and for our families to keep more of what we earn. where we are now in america in the last 11 months is seeing this reversal of those principles that were applied to build up our economy. all of a sudden we are thinking it is okay to grow debt in our country. it is okay to borrow from countries we will soon be so beholding to. it is okay to print money out of thin air and think everything is going to magically work out. fundamentally, everyone is equal in america, everyone has equal opportunity to earn, produce and build. the fundamentals of a strong economy have got to be applied again as they were like i said in the 80s when reagan faced a worse recession than today let's learn from that piece of american history and apply the same solutions. >> what about health care reform? i assume you want some health care reform, maybe i'm wrong. do we need health care reform? >> of course we do. rising costs are crushing some of our small busin

-- we begin this week, i should say, with america's middle class. as you likely know, ground zero for the failing policies of recent american politics. we're, of course, talking about the millions struggling to make ends meet, while paying the price for so many of america's outdated systems. whether that's two wars with no clear exit strategy. you know the narrative. funding a financial structure that takes money from the middle class as opposed to lending it to them. or broken health care system. not to mention a massive, inefficient, opaque government that continues to run record deficits and be dominated by special interests in a culture of cultural expediency. those middle-class families are the ones seeing layoffs at the astounding pace we have reported over and over again on this show and so many other places. they're also the people who are either losing their homes or they're stuck in those homes because the value of their mortgage is so much more than the actual value of the property at this point. compare a family of four in 2007 and compare that same family in 1971. whe

's something i like to see and obviously a lot of my colleagues do, too. and i think a lot of middle america does as well. the whole issue of david plouffe coming aboard, washington and the media are fascinated by the cultive personality. and if president obama had already passed the health care reform and had an approval rating of 90% plouffe would still be brought in to help with the mid-term elections. axelrod is saying okay fly boy. time to come off the book tour and roll up your sleeves and get back into the trenches. he is a good hand but he isn't going to fundamentally change what is going on. he isn't giving different advice than david axelrod or robert gibbs. those guys come from the same place. it's interesting that this washington game, while it doesn't do anything different practically speaking inside the white house for the press and ultimately the public it resets the frame. in other words the press will writ something large into this motion that david plouffe has come into the mix and things are going to change because he is there. but that will actually help the obama adminis
to find out how america got rolled, began hearings this week. these four are not the victims of one of the greatest bank heists in history; they're the perpetrators, bankers so sleek and crafty, they got off with the loot in broad daylight, and then sweet-talked the government into taxing us to pay it back. watching that scene on the opening day of the hearings, it was hard enough to believe that almost a year has passed since barack obama raised his hand, too, taking the oath of office to become our 44th president. even harder to remember what america looked like before obama, because we've also been robbed of memory, assaulted by what the nobel laureate czeslaw milosz described as a "fantastic proliferation of mass media." we live in a time "characterized by a refusal to remember." inconvenient facts simply disappear down the memory hole, as in george orwell's novel, "1984." president obama's made plenty of mistakes during his first year, and we've critiqued them frequently here on the journal, but hardly anyone talks anymore about what happened in the years before obama. he inher
the united states of america. the longer it goes on, the worse it is for the country and the worse it is for the administration. >> bill: i do think that the media is consciously underreporting this story tonight. i don't think you will see it on many other broadcasts. president obama out today trying to convince republicans to cooperate with him. that was one of his themes in the state of the union address that the republicans are the party of no. here is what mr. obama said today. >> i know folks, when we are in town there, spend a lot of time reading the polls and looking at focus groups and interpreting which party has the upper hand in november and in 2012 and so on and so on and so on. that's their obsession. i'm not a pundit. i'm just a president. so take it for what it's worth. but i don't believe that the american people want us to focus on our job security. they want us to focus on their job security. >> bill: so my question is, do you believe the republican party is going to cooperate with the president. or, as we said, after the state of the union, they are just going t
teacher america folks participate in teacher u. i'd like to just talk a little bit about how we approach this work. we have a textbook that we've developed that we use with our core members called teaching as leadership. we're releasing a version actually this month or early this month that we're hoping to sort of share that knowledge that we've accumulated by looking at our exceptional teachers more broadly and really just enter into a conversation with people in this sector about what we can do to better prepare and support teachers in general. and one of the things that we focus on that we found in our high performers is their ability to invest students in their work. and, you know, chubb says in his paper students begin lessons unmotivated, they will simply not make the hard effort necessary to learn. agreed. i mean, i couldn't agree more. but i'm not sure that technology will motivate students. i mean, and i'm not sure how you get students to engage in the technology if they have this past of not being successful and don't feel like they want to engage in the work and doubt their ow

the corner. but we need to create more jobs here in america. we know that. we know that one out of 10 americans who want to work cannot find jobs. and our first responsibility must be to help create more jobs so that our economy can rebound and grow. to do that, we need to invest in small businesses. i was pleased to hear the president of the united states last night talk about the importance of small business in our recovery and as we develop our policy need to focus on helping small businesses grow. on american recovery and reinvestment act, we took action, increased the loan limits under the small business administration. we were able to -- to make it less expensive for businesses to borrow from the small business administration much these were good steps that we took. i was proud of an amendment that i offered to increase the surety bond limits so that small companies could get work in this economy. i was proud of the amendment to increase the s.b.a.'s budget so they could have the capacity to help small companies with technical assistance in order to get government jobs. all of t
bernanke and the chairman of the federal reserve, i think we'd be looking at a very different america today. now he was not my choice to become the chairman of the federal reserve. the previous administration nominated ben bernanke. i voted for him. and then when i became chairman of the banking committee in january of 2007, for the first time, i went through a very frustrating year on that committee. on february 7 of 2007, i had my first hearings on the issue of the mortgage crisis in the country. and we had 12 such hearings on that committee over the remaining months. almost one every month on this issue. yet, i could not get the chairman of the federal reserve to pay as much attention as i thought he should have. beginning in the latter part of 2007, and going forward, his leadership in my view was absolutely critical to avoiding the kind of problems this country faced. so, mr. president, i'll speak for a few more minutes later in this tee baivment but i think we would make a great error, indeed, if we were to reject this nomination. we'd not terminate this filibuster, vote up and down o
, at a time when lending is already very tight. america's job creators also see a renewed push by union leaders to pass card check, and many other measures to control the workplace. they see a trial bar working with their allies in congress, and with many state attorneys general, to expand opportunities for new litigation. they see the rise of trade isolationism at home, and abroad, that could threaten their export markets, and now renewed fears about terrorism. and our job creators see the federal government planning to expand the national debt by at least $9 trillion over the next decade. more debt than has been piled up in all the previous years since george washington. they see many states going broke as well. what will the impact be on their companies, and their employees? these are the uncertainties that job creators are wrestling with. uncertainties that call into question how quick or strong our economic recovery will be. and no one is paying is higher price than the american worker. over 7 million americans have lost their job since the recession began. 10% of the work force is
is something we just have to live with? why don't we make anything in america anymore? and why is it so hard to pass a health-care bill that guarantees americans held the lives instead of guaranteeing insurance companies healthy product -- profits? as i travel from city to city, i heard a sense of resignation from middle-class americans. people laid off for the first time in their lives asking, what did i do wrong? i came away shaken by the sense that the very things that make america great are now in danger. what makes us unique among nations is that in america, working people are the middle class. we built our middle-class in the 20th-century through hard work, through struggle, and visionary political leadership. but a generation of destruction economic policies has eroded that progress and now threatens our very identity as a nation. today on every coast and in between, working women and working man are joining the middle class and to protect and rebuilding it. we pray for political leadership ready to fight for the kind of america we want to lead to our children. and again, the forces o

new markets abroad as well. if you want to create a job here in america, small business. host: will his proposals find a welcome ear on capitol hill? guest: i think it will. i think the president gave us a good prescription of how to move forward on how to continue to increase the opportunities for americans businesses to create jobs. host: the president called for increase in our exports. what are some of the barriers to americans exporting more of their products overseas? guest: you heard the president mention, the fact that too many countries that have agreements with us aren't respecting those agreements and aren't enforcing the provisions while we do a very good job of trying to abide by the rules and offer those foreign companies opportunities in our country to sell their goods. too many countries abroad aren't respecting our products, our workers and allowing their markets to be open to our goods. and so, we have to make sure if we're going to sign an agreement, both parties live up to it. and times we have seen in the past several years that the trade agreements open u
